 Fixes since v1.7.9
 ------------------
 
+ * rpmbuild noticed an unpackaged but installed *.mo file and failed.
+
  * Subprocesses spawned from various git programs were often left running
    to completion even when the top-level process was killed.
 
+ * "git add -e" learned not to show a diff for an otherwise unmodified
+   submodule that only has uncommitted local changes in the patch
+   prepared by for the user to edit.
+
+ * Typo in "git branch --edit-description my-tpoic" was not diagnosed.
+
  * Using "git grep -l/-L" together with options -W or --break may not
    make much sense as the output is to only count the number of hits
    and there is no place for file breaks, but the latter options made
    chain and veered into side branch from which the whole change to the
    specified paths came.
 
+ * "git merge --ff-only $tag" failed because it cannot record the
+   required mergetag without creating a merge, but this is so common
+   operation for branch that is used _only_ to follow the upstream, so
+   it was changed to allow fast-forwarding without recording the mergetag.
+
+ * "git mergetool" now gives an empty file as the common base version
+   to the backend when dealing with the "both sides added, differently"
+   case.
+
  * "git push -q" was not sufficiently quiet.
 
  * When "git push" fails to update any refs, the client side did not
    report an error correctly to the end user.
 
- * "git mergetool" now gives an empty file as the common base version
-   to the backend when dealing with the "both sides added, differently"
-   case.
+ * "rebase" and "commit --amend" failed to work on commits with ancient
+   timestamps near year 1970.
 
  * When asking for a tag to be pulled, "request-pull" did not show the
    name of the tag prefixed with "tags/", which would have helped older
